Eli 7.3 had a pizza dinner tonight with his soccer team to celebrate the end of the season.

The kids on his team are probably (collectively) the nicest bunch of kids I've ever been around. And one of my favorite kids is Catherine. Catherine always wears pink, stops during games to give teammates a hug, and to call her buoyant would be an insult, because she's downright ebullient.

She's also 4'6" and weighs about 45 pounds soaking wet. A human walking stick, in other words.

Tonight, Catherine and her father sat beside us at the pizza place, and I watched her eat five slices of pizza and a piece of cake in fifteen minutes. At one point, she was alternating bites between pizza and cake.

She also said she did a cartwheel over a mud puddle once. I believe her.
